$350,000 Total Recovery (Policy Limits: $10,000/$20,000)

Larry Gillispie and his daughter, Cassarina, were driving east bound on state road 72 when a vehicle heading in the opposite direction crossed into their lane and struck the left front section of their vehicle. Both of our clients were transported to the hospital via ambulance and Larry was later taken via medical helicopter to a trauma hospital due to respiratory failure. Our office contacted the insurance company for the vehicle owner but the insurance company denied coverage because the driver at the time of the accident was not the owner. Our office fought against the coverage issue and it was ultimately ruled by a federal court judge that there was in fact coverage on the date of the accident. After multiple mediations and just months before trail was to begin, the insurance company agreed to settle for $350,000. Fortunately for our clients we fought against the insurance company and their mistake of not paying the policy limits when our offer was sent ended up costing them a lot of money. Injuries: Cassarina: multiple bulging discs, concussive syndrome and mild right lower thoracic scoliosis. Larry: multiple bulging discs, laceration on left shoulder causing a labral tear, impingement and rotator cuff tear and arterial bleed requiring a transfusion, surgical correction of the left deltoid muscle and left shoulder, pulmonary contusion resulting in respiratory failure, renal laceration and splenic laceration. Damages: Past &future medical expenses, past &future lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, past &future pain and suffering, extra contractual damages for insurance bad faith. GILLISPIE v. ISLAS.
